VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Sono Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: SRCI) (the “Company” or “Sono”) has generated the first 12 drill targets and has begun drilling on its 100% owned copper/silver project in Botswana, Africa.
The drill targets were generated from the interpretation of high-resolution airborne magnetic (HRAM) data that was produced in late 2011 in preparation for this year’s drilling program originally scheduled to start in January. The HRAM data results are of high quality and provide invaluable insight into the structural and geological setting.
The program is designed to test for the presence of sediment-hosted copper/silver mineralization on the initial target locations to a depth of approximately 150 meters.
A detailed HRAM Map with drill targets is available for online viewing here (http://tinyurl.com/7j2vtg8).
Geological interpretation suggests that it appears that the geological evolution of this portion of the Kalahari Copper Belt (KCB) underwent two tectonic episodes – one, a simple compressive regime, which generated the ubiquitous synclines and anticlines observed throughout the belt, followed by a later compression from a possible left lateral regional shear couple.
This second episode has overprinted many Reidel structural elements and thrusting.
“The geology of the Bonnyridge license blocks is all structurally controlled and the HRAM data allows us better insight into interpretation,” states Sono Resources’ geologist Luc Antoine. “Encouragingly, several of the priority targets from the HRAM data interpretation coincide with the geophysical anomalies.”
The Bonnyridge licenses are located in the central portion of the KCB, in Botswana, which is widely characterized as the south-westerly extension of the Zambian/Democratic Republic of Congo Copper belt that runs through Botswana and into Namibia.
